A nostalgic look back at one of the county’s fine old market towns and its surrounding villages by one of the town’s foremost historians. Over 200 photographs, many of which are previously unpublished, have been collected by Neil R. Storey and record the shops, trades, events, streets and lanes of the locality in years gone by. Some will be familiar, others changed beyond recognition. Many local characters are remembered, and anecdotes are recalled through the well-researched captions, which are written with the affection and knowledge of one who is proud to be a true local. This superb volume will give pleasure to all who know and love this locality ‘betwixt Poppyland and Broadland’.
This book is not just about the town of North Walsham, but also has photographs from many of the surrounding villages, including Westwick, Swanton Abbot, Scottow, Buxton and Lamas, Gunton, Antingham, Felmingham, Swafield, Edingthorpe, Witton, Crostwight, Honing, East Ruston, Sloley, Worstead, Dilham and Smallburgh.
